In September 2018 Care reached the milestone of being able to house over 200 people! We are thrilled to have doubled our housing capacity since June 2014!
Care’s ethos does not focus on number targets, but we are proud to be able to positively impact upon the lives of more customers year on year. New services are still in demand so we’re continuing to work with support providers to find and develop more schemes, helping to meet the housing needs of more supported individuals. Our bespoke properties range from single-person flats and houses, to shared houses in which people often live together for many years.
Our latest scheme, and first in Lincolnshire, is 2 refurbished bungalows with 8 self-contained flats inside.
This year has seen significant changes for Care:
- We have hired two new members of staff – a second housing officer and a property surveyor.
- We have successfully opened several schemes comprising 8-10 newly-built or refurbished flats, as well as schemes in Local Authorities that we haven’t worked in before.
- We have also moved offices from Blackburn to Rawtenstall.
